Welcome to the April edition of The Acclivity Health Report! Job growth totaled 236,000 in March, meeting expectations as hiring pace slowed. Spring has officially arrived, and temperatures are warming up fast. For many professionals, it’s time to rotate our wardrobe back to lighter clothing. While it’s good news for most, we thought this would be a good time to remind our readers about the importance of maintaining a professional appearance.

Although the term ‘dress for success’ is most used regarding job interviews, many professionals tend to forget that it also relates to looking professional on the job. Dressing for success presents your true potential. After all, most of us have heard the simple but true suggestion that we ‘dress for the job we want, not the job we have’. So, whether you’re interviewing for a new position, or you just want to be noticed and respected by your current company leaders, you should consider how daily dress habits are helping you towards these goals.

This month The Acclivity Health Report will help job seekers understand the difference between running to a new job vs running from your current one. For hiring managers, our experts give advice on how top employers attract and keep the best talent.

As always, thank you for reading and we hope you enjoy this issue!
